The book “Forever Russian: Memoirs of a Vagabond Prince,” written by Georges Yurievich Obolensky, is an interesting memoir of a member of the very prominent Russian noble family– Obolensky. This book recently became available from the author’s widow, Mrs. Rhoda Obolensky.
Prince Obolensky traces his roots back to the Varangian chieftan, Rurik, who founded the Rurik Dynasty, which ruled in Russia from 682 until the 16th century and bestowed the title of “Prince” to the family.
As with many Russian émigrés, Prince Obolensky grew up in France and emigrated to the United States. His memoirs retell his story and that of his close relatives who escaped from the Communist take-over of Russia. It is easy to read and interesting to not only those of Russian descent but also to anyone interested in history.
To place an order for your copy of the book, please contact Mrs. Obolensky by visiting http://www.princeyuri.com/.
